Chair #78

—Designed by Barbara Barry

When Bogie and Bacall paired up to star in "To Have and Have Not" in 1944, they turned into one of Hollywood's most enduring romances. In the film, Bacall's character Slim wore glamorous dresses, and a had a mysterious demeanor. Surely Ms. Bacall had a chair similar to this in her dressing room. Like the chair, she was sultry, sassy, curvy, tailored, and very self reliant. And of course it was in this film that Bacall delivered the classic line... "You do know how to whistle, don't you Steve? You just put your lips together and... blow."
